Roundup: External hard drives under $150

Before you start furiously deleting precious music, photos, and movies from your computer, why not free up space and archive your library at the same time with an external hard drive? Storage vendors like Seagate, Samsung, and LaCie are competing to offer the lowest cost-per-gigabyte on the market, which means generous cost savings for the end consumer; and you don't just get a slab of hardware, either- most drives come pre-installed with automatic backup software that let you specify data profiles and exactly which folders on your system drive to sync with the external, so in the unfortunate event of a hard drive failure you'll always have your precious data backed up and ready to go. Check our the list below for our favorite external hard drives under $150.
